Making a Splash in the Hamptons!

Aug 11, 2016 2:39:54 PM

Going on now is the Traditional Home Magazine, Hampton Designer Showhouse.  This is the sixteenth year they have sponsored a showhouse in the Hamptons and this year is as impressive as ever!  The 10,000 square foot house was impeccably designed throughout by top design talent!  

Hampton Showhouse 2016                                                                                                                                      Image: Rio Hamilton.com

We were placed in the showhouse through our account English Country and Antiques located in Bridgehampton, NY.  Items were chosen for the kitchen which included the breakfast table and items for the countertops.

The kitchen was designed by Bakes & Kropp, they did a beautiful job!  

How amazing is that chandelier!  The leather details reminds us of our new Giorgio!

Every room in the showhouse is stunning and unique, see images of the house on the blog Rio Hamilton, or if you are in the area visit the showhouse yourself.  It will be open through Labor Day and the proceeds will benefit the Southhampton Hospital.  Click here for more infomation or to purchase tickets.

Table Styling by a Pro

Aug 8, 2016 2:03:56 PM

When Jennifer of Decor Gold Designs let us know that she would be featuring Arte Italica on her blog we were thrilled!  She has incredible style and if you follow her blog or Instagram (if you don't you should) then you know it is full of amazing interiors and beautiful and inspiring images.  So of course being apart of that environment is such an honor.

Decor Designs-Dining Table

She has such a wonderful assortment and put a lot of thought in to layering different collections to show how you can create your own personalized look.

Decor Gold-Placesetting

Her blog focused on styling your table which can really be used from hosting a small dinner party or for larger gatherings.

Decor Gold-Table

We loved how she focused on creating your own Arte Italica collection and mixing and matching.  She even pointed out that she used two different chargers and the ends of the table!

Christmas in July!

Jul 20, 2016 1:21:20 PM

July is here which means on July 24 we have 22 weeks until Christmas, basically the year is already half way over and the count down has begun!

I used to think that Christmas in July was silly, there was so much time, however as I get older I get it!  Time flies, and before you know it, the holidays are here!

Natale Table

Our Natale Collection continues to expand and we have added 7 pieces to the Collection! Including these beautiful pitchers with rope handles.

Natale Pitchers

Natale is the perfect pattern to entertain throughout the winter season and the design is classic and timeless.  We wanted to incorporate the nostalgic feelings that the holidays bring so we have added 4 pieces we call Natale Casa.  These pieces feature a cozy cabin with a snowy fence.  

Natale Casa

Another wonderful thing about Natale is that you can keep it casual with our Scavo Chargers or you can "dress" it up with our Finezza or Vetro Gold, add our Orabella Flatware for even more elegance!

Natale Placesetting

Another option for setting your Natale Table is adding our New Natale Glass.  Vibrant, etched glass featuring berries and holly, create a gorgeous setting!

Natale Red Glass

Here is our top 10 must haves for Natale this season!

Top 10 Must Haves

1. Gravy Boat / 2. Casa Round Platter / 3. Tray / 4. Baker / 5. Red Bowl / 6. Square Plate / 7. Tray with Handles / 8. Trivet / 9. Salt & Pepper / 10. Pitcher

Recently we were featured on the blog Decor Gold for a piece on summer entertaining.  This piece was a collaboration with seven other bloggers also sharing their ideas on entertaining.  Each used the hashtag BloggersPatioParty to share on Instagram.

Creating your own patio party can be fun!  Keep the group small and intimate, choose easy foods that celebrate the season like a caprese salad, grilled salmon, fresh fruits, cheese and crackers.  Think about the pieces you already own and how you can incorporate new pieces that help set the tone but work with what you have.  

Venezia Collection

The Venezia Collection

Our Venezia Collection mixes well with white, creams and blues and gives a coastal feel to the gathering.  

Tuscan Collection

Tuscan / Tesoro / Peltro Salad Plate

Our Tuscan, Tesoro and other pewter combination collections are simple yet stunning!  Perfect to mix with solid white collections and just a piece or two add a pop of contrast and beauty to the table.  

Bella Bianca Collection

Bella Bianca

You can't go wrong with all white like our Bella Bianca.  It mixes in beautifully and has wonderful serving pieces that make a statement!
